Unhappy Need help with 64bit Fedora/ 32 bit Windows Dual Boot


I have an issue when trying to install Windows 32 bit as dual boot with Fedora x86_64 v1.93. When I get either OS running it makes some change to the FAT (I think this is where it's happening) and I can't see the other OS. If I do a fixmbr or fixboot in Windows XP Pro 32bit and get it running then Fedora quits, then I do a grub install /dev/hda and WIn XP quits booting. Has anyone had this problem and been able to fix it or get around it. I was thinking about getting 2 hot swap disks and just loading OS on each seperately but that will be expensive. Winders 64 bit will not support half my hardware yet so going to it is not an option right now.

My hardware:

Athlon 64 3000+
Gigabyte mobo with NVIDIA Nforce chipset
1 gig of RAM
NVIDIA GeForce Video

The boot drive is partitioned 50/50 and is attached on the mobo standard IDE controller.

Also if anyone knows of an ITE SATA driver for this MOBO I would be appreciative.
